About Me

I’ve always loved storytelling! Growing up I entertained my sisters with stories (some true, some fictitious) behind the writing of a song on the radio. Now I enjoy sharing stories about my childhood (some true, some fictitious) to my three children!

My sixth grade teacher helped me discover my love of writing. We focused on persuasive essays so I assumed I loved arguing a point. (But why did I love the warmup exercise where I got to write about my weekend?) In adulthood I worked an office job where I regularly volunteered for any task that involved writing; policy documents, meeting notes, onboarding instructions. If it involved words, let me at it!

Now I am excited to be blending my two loves, storytelling and writing! 

Although, my first project blends another interest of mine…

I’m nerd-ily passionate about safety. In A Quiet Place I choked up when Emily Blunt, speaking of her children, desperately murmured, “who are we if we can’t protect them?” Yessss Em, yes! Who indeed? (Yeah, I’m in therapy. Why do you ask?) I made a decently vigilant lifeguard, for a high schooler, and my fully-grown sisters roll their eyes every time I refuse to drive until they click it. 

When I am not writing, I enjoy caring for my kids, dating my husband, doing anything in the mountains (except downhill skiing - ugh!), watching the latest season of the bachelor/bachelorette, and, like any good little writer, reading. ;)

But mostly I’m just grateful for you, who took a minute out of your day to visit my website! Thank you for your time, interest, and support!
